Implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) is a true infrastructure bill, which our country has needed for more than a generation!

The IIJA is widely support by American voters and majorities in both political parties. There is $854 billion in infrastructure investment including the baseline and increases across the different aspects.  Over $350 billion of funding is dedicated to roads and bridges and the vast majority of funding goes to building hard infrastructure.

The IIJA is fully paid for in a variety of ways - none of which include raising corporate, individual or capital gains tax rates. Independent studies have shown the long-term spending for improving capital assets in the IIJA will drive economic efficiency and productivity; increase GDP; generate additional revenue; and will not increase inflation.
